The Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC) wants the region to be well represented at the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) in Hungary next year.
President Bishop Gabriel Malzaire of Roseau, Dominica will therefore be the spiritual director for an AEC-organised pilgrimage to the congress’ host city, Budapest. The pilgrimage dates are September 13 to 20, 2020.
The IEC is a one-week event held regularly since 1881 (every four years in recent times) which celebrates the Real presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
This is the second time that Hungary hosts the IEC, with the first one also held in Budapest in 1938.
Budapest was named host city by Pope Francis in January 2016, at the end of IEC 2016 held in Cebu City, Philippines.
